. >> america cannot determine the future of egypt. that's a task for the egyptian people. we don't take sides with any particular party or political figure. i know it's tempting inside of egypt to blame the united states or the west or some other outside actor for what's gone wrong. we've been blamed by supporters of morsi, we've been blamed by the other side as if we are supporters of morsi. that kind of approach will do nothing to help egyptians achieve the future that they deserve. >> reporter: and, thomas, while we are waiting for reaction to come in, i suspect part of what you'll hear are some lawmakers making the point this doesn't go far enough. we know senator john mccain has been consistently calling on the united states to pull back and to end the $1.3 billion in military aid that it sends to egypt every year. there are some democrats that have gotten on board with that as well. representative keith ellieson making that same point yesterday. bipartisan calls for the united states to take a much tougher stance of president obama continuing to get updated on the situation in egypt whi
process, but considering the breadth of america's economy and where we've been and how we have we've recovered, there's something wrong with the recovery of this recession and it's just not living up to its potential. >> well, actually, it's not as weird as you think. if you look at reinhart and the arguments from a couple of years ago, it's following the track that they said, when you have the debt-caused recessions, it's hard to get out of them. you can't afford to spend out of them. >> i see wal-mart down in earnings and macy's, cisco down on earnings and to me, it suggests a lot of problems throughout all parts of the economy. how do we turn them around? i don't know that we can afford to just bump along the way we have been. >> i'm not sure we've got an alternative. it would be good if you've got strong action from washington and fix some of our problems, that's not going to happen and get them to agree on anything. >> give me an example of some of that, quote, strong action. >> number one, we've got to do something about the long-term deficit problem in the country. we've pr

states, and i think the public in large measure has come to the conclusion that america can't want these kinds of changes more than the countries themselves want it for themselves. and the difficulty of how much the united states tries to put its thumb on the scale has played out in afghanistan, and played out in iraq and it is now being tested in egypt. so, that's why i'm eagerly anticipating the president's remarks for the larger signals that it sends about the kind of leverage he intendeds to use and how much time he intends to dedicate to this particular issue which is not just -- remember, this is not just about the future of egypt. egypt, unlike other country, i think it's tom friedman and others say what happens in egypt doesn't stay in egypt. it's important for the region. important for israel and really important for the future of u.s. foreign policy. >> it's something i've always looked to as a trend-setter in the arab role. i want to bring in benjamin goldbe goldberger, times national editor. i want to start with you. this is a much larger question for that entire region

secretary kerry to cairo. >> america cannot determine the future of egypt. that's a task for egyptian people ♪ there must be some kind of way out of here said the joker to the thief ♪ ♪ there's too much confusion >> good afternoon. we begin as the death toll from egypt's bloody crackdown continues to rise well into the hundreds now. as the extent of the military's assault on protesters comes into focus and the u.s. gauges its response to the bloodshed. at this hour, health officials report more than 600 dead and some 3,700 injured. figures that are yet expected to rise in the worst day of civil violence in the nation's modern history. but despite the brutal toll, muslim brotherhood supporters have ousted president morsi, urged demonstrators to take to the streets once more, vowing to bring down the interim government with mass protests today in cairo and to the north in alexandria. government buildings were set on fire in the city of guiza across the nile river from cairo. even if the interim government vowed to confront, quote, terrorist acts and officially authorize the use of live f
with strong economics, and we are weaker with bad economics. the problems in latin america, the countries that are in trouble, they will affect us because the problems that goes on in those countries will spillover into the stable partners that we need. we need the neighbors to be just as stable. >> think you're absolutely right. i think that the future lies in understanding that despite the pivot to asia, the intention that is being brought to bear on china, the huge market, the huge challenges and opportunities, the americans are unique. a set of common, core values that bind the americas together. human capital is our most important asset. diversity of that human capital. i was born in mexico. half armenian. i now live in the united states. this human capitol that we had, it's complement's. this is the future promise. that is what we have to bind together, whether it is, you know, through the tpp and expanded trade agreement that will bind the countries that believe in that core set of values. it is providing the issues that are not put on the table in naphtha when it was initiated bac

grievance industry in america pedals victimization all weekend long. what good does that do? oprah winfrey is the best example of a talented person who made it on her own in america. she is now one of the most powerful human beings on the planet. her color certainly didn't hold her back from achieving that if some idiot shop clerk insults ms. winfrey, that's wrong but no big deal. oprah can get on a private jet and fly anything she wants to buy anything she wants. she has made it in america because she worked hard. and used the talent god granted her. summing up, the victim hood card is useless to oprah and to everybody else. there is racism in the world. it's not going away. if you can change it, try. but most of the time ignore it. don't let it dampen your life. and that's the memo. now for the top story tonight. reaction. joining us from new orleans, fox news anchor arthel neville and chief religion correspondent lauren green with us here in new york city. where am i going wrong here, lauren. >> actually i don't think you are going wrong. only problem is you weren't there, i wasn't ther
morsi demonstrators that america backs israel that somehow you're be holden to a greater enemy. so an animosity there. and the crowds, until you experience it, you can't imagine the anger they feel towards many outsiders. >> when you see these pictures, you certainly get a good sense of it, but we tend to think that when the president of the united states stands up and does a live news conference, that every ounce of what he says, every letter of what he says, is taken literally. it is overparsed and also surmised that he's either for or against your side. is it that several anymore? do these people give a hoot anymore what the president has to say? >> it's wildly misinterpreted. one of the guys as we walked away started shouting at me saying we hate obama's policy on this. and i'm trying to imagine -- all of it. you see the cutting of the memi exercise. that won't have a sharp intake of breath. they have seen the diplomatic process that failed and now 500 people have been killed, and the best washington is prepared to do is throw down a military exercise. >> this may not come off

transparent reforms to the constitution and democratic elections of a parliament and a president. america cannot determine the future of egypt. that's a task for the egyptian people. we don't take sides with any particular party or political figure. i know it's tempting inside of egypt to blame the united states or the west or some other outside actor for what's gone wrong. we've been blamed by supporters of morsi; we've been blamed by the other side as if we are supporters of morsi. that kind of approach will do nothing to help egyptians achieve the future that they deserve. we want egypt to succeed. we want a peaceful, democratic, prosperous egypt. that's our interest. but to achieve that, the egyptians are going to have to do the work. i want to be clear that america wants to be a partner in the egyptian people's pursuit of a better future. and we are guided by our national interest in this long- standing relationship. but our partnership must also advance the principles that we believe in and that so many egyptians have sacrificed for these last several years, no matter what party or

of your speech you kept on saying "wake up." >> i'd say "wake up, america." and he said "i have a dream." so weren't you fighting each other? (cheers and applause) what do you think we should remember about the significance of that day? >> it was an unbelievable day. hundreds of thousands of americans came together: blacks, whites, latinos, asian americans, native americans. men. women. children. when i was introduced, i looked up over that audience, the sea of humanity, i saw all of these young people on my right and then i looked to my left i saw many young people in the trees. then i looked straight ahead i saw hundreds and thousands of people young and old with their feet in the water trying to cool off and i said "this is it." and i started speaking. >> stephen: were you nervous? >> no, i was not. i had been arrested and gone to jail many times by the time of the march on washington. i met with president kennedy a few weeks before the march. and president kennedy didn't like the idea of bringing hundreds of thousands of people to washington. he said "if you bring all thee folks to

but is now the national security advicer and has been in the job over six weeks. it's time that america got a chance to at least listen to what advice she is giving to president obama which,ed as i said, looks like good advice but she would be in the position to answer questions specifically about the coup. i think having the spokesperson do it is too much. >> that's a -- >> sometimes you have to ask the principle to be able to go forward. you can maintain for a while on your own as a spokesperson, but if you are not the subject matter expert, you need somebody in authority to do that. >> shepard: some polls suggest that 37% of americans surveyed get it that egypt is a big deal to us, and the other 63% are wrong. can't think of a more important al lime the relationship with egypt and the peace treaty. without a stable, cooperating egypt, we're in trouble. >> it is very difficult for any administration, but in particular one that prefers to focus on other things and tries to focus on domestic issues, as it should when it comes to the economy. but it's hard for americans to understand whyshir

, america's top diplomat in a hastily arranged appearance once again urged all parties to seize fire and resume dialogue. >> it is possible, though it has been made uch harder, much more complicated by the events of today. reporter: susan rice has been briefing president obama during his vacation on martha's vineyard. his spokesman was pressed on whether they don't make it gently clear that the military has staged a coup d'État in egypt. and they have danced around it like that dancing a fred astaire. >> it has been determined by senior foreign policy officials in this administratio did not make a determination. >> we looked at our legal requirements to determine that wewere not reqred to make a determination. including what is the impact on national security. >> they have failed this as misguided with disastrous effects. chaos and cairo, secretary john kerry praising the military did not help. >> from benghazi to cairo, obama's foreign policy is not working, but it is literally an inflad and if we lose egypt cannot imagine what this will look like. lou: it was quick to fram the for
rights. for one thing, you get to vote in san francisco. you get to vote in america. and that voting right is so precious. and we saw just a month ago or less than a month ago how we revisited how valuable that voting rights is, and all the sacrifices that heroes of this country had to protect that right for everybody. we want everybody to enjoy that because that gets you a voice and all the things we initially talked about. we want citizens to have a proper rich orientation and training classes that will conduct -- that will be conducted through this initiative, nonpartisan voting, the rights to vote, the right to be educated around every ballot measure that we have, whether it costs you more money or it doesn't cost you anything, or how do we improve muni, whether it costs you more or doesn't cost you anything. how do we do all of that in a much more involved way? education, outreach, more engaging new citizens to mentor and help other eligible immigrants navigate the citizenship application process. we think this is our next big challenge, but opportunity just beyond the work that

the middle east, impacts the united states of america. talk about the recent developments and especially what happened yesterday and historically just how bad that is, not only for egypt but the middle east and stability across the region? >> well, you put your finger on it. we've often, you know, for 30 years, 40 years even, we've valued a stable egypt in the shifting calculus of the middle east as arguably the greatest value that explains going back, you know, at least to the late '80s, early '90s, a support for the mubarak regime which was hardly a model of human rights and democracy, to say the least. so we have practiced a real policy there, a balance of interests, and now because of the arab spring, because of what's happened in this remarkable scenes from the square over the past couple of years, we have this question of, if you have a democratically elected government, a, what does that mean? and b, what if you get a democratically elected government that you believe is ultimately bad for the security of the region, which is our national interests in this? >> unfortunately, jon, there
and also incredibly public and inspirational for the public. those were the kind of principles that america was built on. for king to continue that narrative and really bring us into the 21st century is the sort of model of a more equal america, that really, for me, is the staying power and it's something that we're all still trying to achieve. >> yeah. it's a fabulous work that you put together. i could have spent the whole day playing around with it. one of the quotes to underscore what jonathan is saying about the broad reach of dr. king's speech is a quote from malala, human rights activist in pakistan, and she says that his legacy is that those words reached far beyond america's shores and the generation that he spoke about. 50 years beyond the oration, i have a dream, too. we know how profound the impact has been. how is the speech viewed and how was it covered in the context of those times? >> well, it's a fascinating story we learned from interviewing clarence jones. not only was the dream part improvised on that day, he has talked about -- he had given that i have a dream earlier i

they can participate in the economic promise of america. so that they can have their hopes and dreams, and we want to have some discipline on the side of people who depend on the government, but we also have to help them to come across that bridge so they can join in the american system. that's why we need economic growth in this country. that's why we need a flexible k through 12 education system to answer kid's parks -- kids' passions rather than dropping out, and it's our responsibility to help those people who live in the shadows. i think it makes great common sense and that is what america is about. >> neil: are you surprised by the vitriol who have gotten, make sure you're not re-elected? >> neil, neil, i don't get a lot of vitriol. because when you sit down -- >> neil: governor, i can't repeat what some of these guys said. i'm bag gentleman. >> well, neil, you said it earlier. i don't pay much attention to polls. i really don't. of you do that yours play politics and don't solve problems. some people are angry. some get paid to be angry. that's just the way it is. but the avera
, is the drug cartels and the violent side of is a demand for drugs in the united states of america. whether they have a submarine, like i have seen in colombia. it is a violent place when you have armed members bringing drugs across the border into our country. i do not excuse any action that .ook place but to somehow think it is not dangerous when cartel members are bringing drugs up to this country is not an adequate reading of the situation on the border, and i visit it all the time. said, i think the answer to our border control is technology. you have a point about additional border patrol. one of the things we need more of is customs people so we can .xpedite traffic back and forth there are some of us here old enough to remember we used to be able to walk across and have and walkedgales back. think about doing that today. you bring up problems on the border, and with this surveillance capability, we will people back,keep and then we will be able to send these teams out. finally, the coyotes. we know these coyotes are the worst scum of the earth people, and they are bringing people it
're underreporting your profits. haven't small businesses in america been through enough without this type of shakedown? >> peter: read us the letter you got. >> brian: i don't think it's fair for me to talk anymore. i'm going to pass. [ laughter ] >> gretchen: wow. okay. fox news alert. notification of possible income underreporting. that is a tearout, part of a quote of one of these letters -- >> brian: think about that, you're trying to make ends meet and all of a sudden you get that. you know it could destroy your business. you got to get your accountant involved and put everything down. you got to stop everything you're doing. >> gretchen: time is up. tom vees a small business owner who received one of those letters. he was on the greta program last night. here is tom. >> the letter was very threatening. it's making almost -- almost making an accusation and as you get into it, you don't really know what the accusation is about. it was a notice that i may have underreported income. called my tax accountant. we work real hard and so i called him to find out how to respond. i guess the f
you busy all season? >> there is animals everywhere. north america, top to bottom. >> peter: can aidry yep give us a big wave. >> brian: she'll be back tomorrow. >> gretchen: see you then. bill: you know what that is, martha? martha: what? bill: that's a bear market, folks. claim by an economist who says the national debt which stands just shy of 17 trillion isn't even close to what the government and you the taxpayer really owe. oh joy. martha: fantastic. bill: i'm bill hemmer. welcome to "america's newsroom." martha: and i'm fine. i'm martha maccallum. good morning, everybody. the gentleman who came with this is james hamilton. he is a economics professor at university of california at san diego. and he claims that the true national debt is more like 70 trillion dollars. and that the government has been low balling us for years according to him by keeping certain debt off the books. bill: with the government on the hook for ious like social security and medicare and pension promises across the country, combined with an aging population, america could be in a whole lot of hurt.
the people of america what our health care alternative is and we've yet to do that. >> bob, there's no accountability as we've been saying about other issues because of hyper partisan districts. if i'm a gop member of the house and rail against obama care and say let's defund the government, et cetera, et cetera, and maybe public surveys across the country say that individual is out of step, chances are they're not out of step in their own district. >> i think that's true. one of the problems the republican party has now is that it rode the tea party to power in the house in 2010 and now stuck with all those people. i think john is largely right about what sensible republicans want to do. i'm not sure he's right about the ways out. but you have a whole group of folks who might just take this over the cliff. if boehner holds to the rule that he has to have a majority of the majority before he'll bring anything to the floor, you might just have a government shutdown. and sensible people in the republican party like john brabender, carl row think this is a train wreck for the gop. it
in time all america can really do is ask for restraint on both sides. certainly keep our fingers crossed that the bloodshed will end and that the military will respect human rights. >> if we wait and we keep our fingers crossed and we ask for restraint, u.s. officials as we understand until the very last minute before this crackdown were reaching out to their counterparts in egypt asking for that very restraint but they were ignored. so do we have an influence? keeping fingers crossed doesn't seem like it is going to cut it anymore. >> no, it's tragic we don't have greater influence. about the only thing we have right now is the threat of cutting out military aid. quite honestly, a number of us in the senate were willing to give the president the flexibility prior to the august recess. when we come back in september if events don't improve dramatically, i don't think there is going to be any choice than to basically force the hand of this administration and cut off military aid to egypt. >> should he have made that call today? should hathat have been the decision now? >> first, i don't t
of the egyptians. >> america cannot determine the future of egypt. that's a task for the egyptian people. we don't take sides with any particular party or political figure. i know it is tempting inside of egypt to blame the united states or the west or some other outside actor for what's gone wrong. that kind of approach will do nothing to help egyptians achieve the future that they deserve. we want egypt to succeed. we want a peaceful, democratic, prosperous egypt. that's our interest. >> joining me today, political editor and white house correspondent at "the huffington post," sam stein. "washington post" columnist jonathan capehart, founder and editor at large, charlie senate, jon meacham author of "thomas jefferson -- the art of power." joining us now from cairo, nbc news foreign correspondent ayman muhyeldin. we're hearing from the spokesperson for the muslim brotherhood that they want to remain nonviolent and peaceful. we are also at the same time hearing news that there is live ammo being launched by morsi supporters and molotov cocktails. can you give us the latest on the situation on th
this" on al jazeera america. >> good thing to mix with soda, right? >> nobody told me i was on. >> we used to have a drinking game in the control room. nobody drank, but we had certain things that everybody would say and i would yell drink and everybody would pretend to take a drink. one was cenk saying "one more question." everyone would grown and pretend to drink, the other one was anytime michael shure mentioned a dead president. cenk: here's something our audience didn't know. when we had deserrano as the sponsor, well, after john finishes his show in about an hour. >> way to screw up john's line. cenk: i thought in order to keep it real, i should actually try it before we did the first sponsorship, right? i had forgotten to try it the night before and there was a bar down stairs from the new york studio. i literally right before the show went and took a shot of it before going on air, so that i could say oh, when i said on air it's delicious, i wanted to actually mean it and if it wasn't, i wasn't going to say it. you see what i'm saying? >> was it delicious? cenk: it was! >> the
